Obayemi.

presentation at Agbado-Ekiti, noted that the selection of the
traditional ruler was in line with the provisions of Section 8A(1) Cap
Cs of the Ekiti State Chief Law 2012, adding that the process of
installing the new Oba commenced shortly after the demise of Late Oba
Dare Ita Okunbobade of the Agbobgomoja ruling house on 11th day of
September, 2018.

Describing the selection process as satisfactory, Professor Olusola
lauded the people of the town, particularly the kingmakers for what he
called their demonstration of decorum and decency in the selection
process.

He, however, stressed the need for them to continue working towards
the successful reign of the new Oba by supporting and cooperating with
him.

The Deputy Governor advised the new monarch to work harmoniously with
the people in order to accelerate development in the area.

Responding, Oba Adesina Obafemi expressed gratitude to God saying that
the hitch free ceremony, as well as the prompt presentation of the
instrument of appointment and staff of office, was a display of God's
favour.

Oba Obafemi who also expressed appreciation to the State Government,
the kingmakers and people in the community, vowed not to betray the
confidence reposed in him by his ancestors and the people, adding that
he would do everything possible to develop the town and protect the
tradition of the people.
